We could in theory also add that Perry doesn't care whether an innocent person is given Capital Punishment. The reason I say this is that a man by the name of Cameron Todd Willingham. He'd been convicted of starting the fire that killed his three children, however the state later felt that the arson case had been doubtful. The reason being that the lighter fluid used as an accelerant was found to have been added later when the fire crews were hosing the house and knocked the bottle over from the BBQ. Combine this with the Fire Marshall retracting his statement. Because Perry had been governor in 2004 when Cameron was executed by lethal injection, he went on to block the investigation into whether Texas for the second time in 15 years, had executed an innocent person (Carlos DeLuna was found to have been innocent after the Courts reviewed the evidence against him (Which was circumstantial) after he was executed in 1989), by replacing 2 of the three board members who then closed the case to protect Perry and the State from a wrongful death lawsuit by Cameron's family.
